Coming to you a day late in the #yarnlovechallenge, hello my name is Clara and I love words and yarn. I’ve been knitting since Olivia Newton John was first popular, then I made it my business. I write about yarns in Knitter’s Review, I write books, I sometimes teach and speak at events, I have strong opinions, and lately I’ve developed the frightening habit of acquiring wool by the bale and making into large quantities of yarn. I live in Maine with my partner spouse person and our aged cat, and I normally write from the kitchen table so I can leap up and check whatever’s in the oven. Butter is good.
